A cousin of Emir of Kano, Isa Pilot has lodged a complaint against Air Peace Company over what he described “disrespect” to the Emir of Kano and the entire people of the state which led to the Monarch missing his flight demanding the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) take punitive actions against the airline company.
In the petition, Pilot, said the airline delayed their Banjul to Lagos flight by over one hour and refused to allow them board their connecting flight to Kano because they arrived in Lagos 30 minutes before departure time.
He said, despite call put through to the Air Peace Chairman, Allen Onyema, to inform him of the need to delay the airline’s morning flight to Kano because of the Banjul incident but the Chairman refused to consider their plea.
“He flatly refused and avowed that he will not do that. I personally took this as an insult and a flagrant show of disrespect to his highness and the Kano people at large,”
“The insensitive and disrespectful action caused us untold inconveniences,” he wrote.
